It was just pointed out to me by Jerzy Kaczorowski that there is a -d option to the import command: cvs -H import Usage: cvs.exe import [-d] [-k subst] [-I ign] [-m msg] [-b branch] [-W spec] repository vendor-tag release-tags... -d Use the file's modification time as the time of import. -k sub Set default RCS keyword substitution mode. -I ign More files to ignore (! to reset). -b bra Vendor branch id. -m msg Log message. -W spec Wrappers specification line. It is not mentioned in the manual and I didn't think to just go directly to the source! -Scott "Haible Pascal" <haible at heidenhain.de> wrote in message news:4141A7DD42EFD211B94C00805F8BE19A02709970 at ntas20... > > A lot of information was lost.
